Most of the year was spent on pre-production, live performances and learning how to produce. The resulting studio tracks were used for the aforementioned projects that all saw their release in 2006, which included: a contribution to the shoegaze-homage compilation “Never Lose That Feeling, Volume 2” (other artists includes Hammock, Sing-Sing, etc.) released by ClubAC30 (UK); a contribution for the Propergol Y Colargol rework compilation “Ode to Roger” (other artists includes Eluvium, Helios, etc.) released by Diesel Combustible / Autres Directions in Music (France); a 12” vinyl EP titled “Glare/Halo” released on Claire’s Echo (USA), a Clairecords subsidiary label affiliated with the world widely recognized distributor Tonevendor which has proudly dubbed Destroyalldreamers’ debut album À Cœur Léger Sommeil Sanglant as “The Best Shoegaze Album of 2004”. Destroyalldreamers then finished the recording of their second full-length in the fall of 2006. Shortly after, the band has parted ways with bassist Michèle Martin and the release of the album was put aside. They took a short break the next year to pursue different musical and life projects. In the summer of 2007, Destroyalldreamers got back together as an official three-piece, with a close friend filling out on bass for live performances to ready the release of the aforementioned sophomore album entitled Wish I Was All Flames, again on Where Are My Records in the fall of 2007. This new album is a more focused and mature record, filled with a wide array of sounds, with the added live energy that was developed since their beginnings.
It also marks the end of a chapter for Destroyalldreamers’ journey as the band has already expressed its wishes to explore new sonic territories. Pre-production for future releases is expected to start in the beginning of 2008. Read more on Last.fm.
